Blue Silkie Bantam

$5.75

The Blue Silkie Bantam is a gorgeous variety of the Silkie Bantam breed, miniature chickens that originated in China and Japan.  Some accounts even trace their history back to one of Marco Polo’s discoveries.  Regardless, they have been recognized by the American Poultry Standard of Perfection, and they are a great choice for anyone in need of a show bird or pet.  They are very broody, and they handle confinement extremely well.   Blue Silkie bantam chicks are one of three different colors: blue, black and splash.  Their skin, beak, legs and toes are black. Some have beards and muffs while others do not.  They have walnut combs, a small crest, five toes on each foot and feathers on their legs and feet.  Adult males have a bluish black head while the female’s head is slate blue.  The remainder of the plumage of both males and females is slate blue laced with bluish black.  Place your order for Blue Silkie Bantam chicks today.

You may receive both bearded and non-bearded Silkies in your shipment.

Our bantams are purebred and represent the breed and variety; however, we do not guarantee or represent that they are of show quality.
